Yes, I hope Merritt is OK.  The Titans surely don't need another starter to go down to injury, all their depth aside.  Brovelli, Hughes and Sosa filled in nicely last game. 

The Titans still have two very tough games on the schedule . . . let's hope 15-1 still in the cards.

Yes, important win for IWU at MU.  Now gotta revenge that early season loss to Carthage at the Shirk.  Key games upcoming, to get to 20 wins.

Thought I'd seen everything this season -- but now I know for sure -- Tyler Burdine drilling a trey!   Lovely.  :)

Keep it rolling Titans.

Yes, life is good and internet connections always strong in HKG.  We invest in IT infrastructure big time here, so communications usually go well.  Our former University President was the man who basically brought you the internet (not Al Gore, as claimed) as he, Prof. Charles Kao (Kao Kun) did all the early work on the transmission qualities of glass fiber, bringing you fiber optical cable, and, hence, in many ways, the internet.   He won the Nobel Prize in Physics for this early work -- done at Bell Labs in NJ, later founding chair/head of our information engineering department, then Vice-Chancellor (President) later on.  A very lovely man, brilliant and accessible, almost child-like.  I worked with him very closely here at CUHK when he was President.  Sadly, he now has Alzheimer's and doesn't even know why he won the Nobel Prize. 

Wishing all my fellow chatsters a very happy and healthy Year of the Dog, starting tomorrow!   Kung Hei Fat Choi!  I hope all your hong bao (red packets) are generously filled with plenty of money!

Wow, big comeback for Carroll over NCC.  You have to hand it to Carroll for not giving up when 21 down in the second half, winning in OT 77-73.  Amazing.

Ypsi, got the video OK in HKG though the one from MU is not of great quality or attentiveness to which end of the court the basketball is being played!  :)

IWU over MU in a scratchy kind of game, 65-56.  Not much flow or impressive offense in this one.  MU has a lot of talent, but not quite there yet in terms of being truly team-oriented.  They will be very good next season. 

MU:
Henry 21
Beaty 15

IWU:
Bonnett 15
Rose 14
O'Neill 11

Titans will have to play a lot better than this to beat CC and NCC in the remaining games.

But, a road win in the CCIW is a good win, no matter.

Titans now 18-5, moving on to 11-3 in league play.  Still out front.

Two important games to go.  No let down, TITANS.

Yes, as Ypsi has reported, IWU over MU at The Shirk, 78-54.

MU:
Saddler 12
Curry 9

IWU:
McGraw 18
Anderson (starting for Shanks) 16 and 6
Ehresman 12, 7 rebounds, 6 assists
Walsberg 8

Titans move to 20-3, in CCIW 13-1.  Two games to go away at Carthage and Elmhurst.  A very good test.

Congrats to Coach Smith and all the team on a 20 win season.  A major achievement.   Keep going.

Nice ceremony honoring Coach Kerans before the game . . . congrats to her again on her long, distinguished career at Millikin.

Shanks will be back for sure, only a sophomore now.  Still, a tough loss.  You hate to see someone go down to injury at this point in the season, with post-season likely coming up for the Titans.

I wish her fast and complete healing and recovery.

Glad to see IWU above Chicago in the regional rankings.

Yes, IWU has the depth, can play on well without Shanks, though she is a big loss.  Anderson has been playing extremely well off the bench, and will get the start tonight at The Shirk vs. MU.  Likely more minutes for Sosa and Hughes. 

Titans just need to keep winning, win out and let things take care of themselves -- AQ or C, it matters not. 

Good comments, views on MOP.  Several very deserving candidates.

Nice piece in today's Pgraph about Brady Rose and his rise to the top echelon in the CCIW.  Check it out:  pantagraph.com

Sadly, IWU has lost Sydney Shanks likely for the season, to a broken wrist.  It's a big loss, especially her energy and defensive skills with the press etc.  Nina Anderson will get the call, starting this week vs. Millikin.  I hope Sydney is a fast healer.  Fortunately, IWU has good depth with Sosa, Hughes, Munroe and Brovelli, backing up the starting five.

RogK, seems like a good All-Conference list to me.  Maybe your #8 should be McGraw?  Still some games for various folks to make their All-Conference case.   

Three games to go -- no let down.

Dee43, agree with you on Ehresman, for sure.  Esp. if the Titans win the conference, win out . . . and have the AQ or hopefully a C bid.  Ehresman is also very consistent, game in and game out.  Likely a program record in steals for a season too.

Eppard and Frazier are great players -- deserving of the award as well. 

Stay tuned.  Likely 4-5 games to go for IWU and WC.  Still chances for these players to put up more impressive performances.

Great season for WC and IWU.

WC and IWU likely getting bids, or AQ, so WC can then really prove its worth.  IWU too.  Key is winning out, having a good placement in the regional rankings, to get to the table for early consideration/comparison.  22-3 would be grand for the TITANS.

Keep going TITANS.  No let down.

These polls don't really mean much at this point. . . just gotta take care of business and win out.  Titans have three very tough games to go.  Should would help to get to 20 wins.  Augie has an easier path, for sure.  Then, hopefully, for 2-3 teams in the CCIW, a bid to the March fun.  I agree Ypsi, WC and NCC are up there, should be receiving some support for top 25 placement, IMHO.  Esp. WC given their wins.  Anyway, time will tell -- hopefully CCIW gets 3 teams in the dance, we just don't know which ones yet.  Regional rankings far more important . . . on when you come to the table for consideration/comparison.  It's been a great season so far . . .and still more very important games to go.

With the loss to Wheaton, Titans slip down to #17 in the latest poll.  WC in ORV with 20 votes. 

Titans need to take care of business and win out . . . 3 games to go.  No let down.
